Fleuron de Liot St-Estèphe 2016
This blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from Bordeaux’s left bank is dense and meaty, with notes of plum, licorice, cedar and spice. Decant for an hour, and serve with marinated flank steak.
Belland Maranges 1er cru red 2018
This smooth, inky Pinot Noir is a perfect bistro-style red, with notes of wild cherries, earth, and mushrooms. Serve with a well-seasoned skirt steak or grilled sirloin tips.
Larrieu-Terrefort Haut-Médoc 2014
This Merlot-Cab blend from Bordeaux’s left bank is drinking beautifully today, with soft tannins, subtle earthiness, and notes of woods and spice. Serve with filet mignon or tenderloin.
Ravaut Côte-de-Nuits-Villages 2018
This everyday Pinot Noir shows far more Burgundian elegance than its origin suggests. Look for notes of violets, raspberry, minerals, and toast; serve with NY strip steaks.
